And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. And the Levites, from the sons of the Kohathites and the sons of the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel, with a very loud voice. And when they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah.
(2 Chronicles 20:18, 19, 22 NASB)
Have you ever sang a song of victory in your time of war? The Apostle Paul tells in no uncertain terms that as Christians we are in a spiritual war, and we must fight with spiritual weapons. There's no way around it; it isn't going away and it doesn't matter how big your Bible is. We live in a state of perpetual spiritual warfare because our enemy, satan, will try every tool at his disposal to turn us away from following God and walking in His plan and purpose for our lives. But we are not defenseless; we have spiritual weapons to fight a spiritual, unseen enemy. Be encouraged that praising God is one of our greatest weapons to keep our focus on God in times of battle. When the army of Judah was headed into battle against 3 armies, they praised God on their way. They gave thanks to the Lord for His enduring mercy! And as they did God was taking care of their enemies. After they prayed, and after they heard from God their first line of defense was worship.
What difficulty are you facing today? I challenge you to do as the nation of Judah did - praise God!! Not for the difficulty, but for the fact that He will move on your behalf when you take your focus off the problem, and place it on Him! Warfare praise and worship does not dictate to God what He should do, but acknowledges His power to act.
